Basque etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Basque: *soc
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: spigot, faucet
Bizkaian: zotz, upa-zotz
Gipuzkoan: zotz, upa-zotz, upa-txotx
Comments: Common Bsq *soc (zotz) ‘stick, toothpick’. The western Bsq meaning ‘tap, spigot’ is apparently a development of ‘stick (inserted into hole of a cask)’. Apparently NC has preserved only the specialized meaning, though attested in only three languages (Chechen, Lezgi, Kryz).
